In his newest book, Arriving Home: A Gracious Southern Welcome, readers will enjoy and discover how antiques can be mixed with new upholstery, collections and art can be displayed against updated wall coverings, and layers of jute, sisal, and wood can ground a space, while colorful additions add personality.

From a grand Connecticut country home and a stately abode in St. Louis to a columned antebellum Alabama estate, Farmer’s style travels across the country to set the tone for the lives of his clients. The projects in this stunning volume span the city, the mountains, the country, and the coast and remain rooted in Farmer’s recognizable Southern design.
